Windows SIG: .NET security and the Return of the Rich Client



  • The Monthly Meeting of the Windows SIG


    Presentation Overview

    A quiet revolution is underway - the return of the rich client as the predominant, most productive, and cost-effective way of providing application front-end in an Enterprise environment. The shift's lynchpin is .NET's security model which is based on what the client application and its components are allowed to do. Coupled with web-services based access to the server and http-based deployment, you have all the benefits of traditional web front end with a rich client experience. The talk starts with explaining the basics of .NET security models and then shows how to manage application security using the .NET configuration tool and how to design security policies for the client and the server, how to develop and deploy rich-client applications today and tomorrow, and shares best practiced and guidelines in designing and configuring code-access security.
